The Long Goodbye

Hear Archdiocese of Chicago Deacon John Lorbach explain his heart-warming ministry of accompanying husbands who are themselves accompanying a wife who is experiencing profound memory deficit. Deacon John is interviewed by Deacons Richard Hudzik and Dave Brencic of the Archdiocese’s Office of the Diaconate. Deacon John tells how he gathers men from a variety of faiths, stations in life and ages, who all share the common experience of seeing their marriages significantly change as their wives go down the road of “The Long Goodbye.” Both husband and wife suffer in this journey, as both face the reality that many of their dreams for the days ahead are going to be different because of the wife’s memory loss—whether it be from Alzheimer’s, vascular deficits or otherwise. Deacon John provides a monthly, informal forum for the men to come together and know that they are not the only ones facing such difficulties. They share both the ups and the downs of the process. For more information, you can reach Deacon John at his parish office at St. Raymond Penafort Parish in Mount Prospect. The number is 847-253-8600.

Rest In His Arms

Archdiocese of Chicago Deacon Jim Pauwels speaks about Rest in His Arms, a ministry that provides the dignity of a Christian burial for children, many of them tiny infants, whose remains have been abandoned. The children might be left in a garbage dump, along the side of the road, in a viaduct on a busy city street or in the county morgue. The spiritual care that Deacon Jim and those who work with him attends to not only the children but also the communities in which the bodies are found. Tragedy abounds but hope endures. Deacon Jim speaks with the regular hosts, Deacons Richard Hudzik and Dave Brencic. For more information, go to
